Staff Confidence Pool (No Spread), Week 13 - Footballguys

Weekly Staff Confidence Pool (No Spread). NFL Office Pool Cheat Sheet

Looking to dominate your office pool this season? Fifteen Footballguys.com staff members are here to help you out. Each week they will pick the winners of every NFL game, and rank their selections based on how confident they are that the team will win. The most-confident pick gets 16 points, and the least-confident gets just 1. We'll even total up everyone's picks so you can get an overall consensus on who our staff think will be the most likely winners. Each week we'll announce the weekly winners, and track the overall record for the entire season. A couple of things to note before we get to the picks:

  • Picks for this pool are straight up (no point spread considered).
  • Picks are due on Wednesday nights, and will not reflect any late-breaking news. If your league allows for last minute changes, please make adjustments to your office pool accordingly.
  • Our staffers also play in weekly picks Against The Spread, and Survivor Style 'Pick one Winner each week' formats as well. Check out the other weekly articles for more help with those type of games.

RESULTS FROM LAST WEEK

Jeff Pasquino nearly had a perfect week, only missing the Pittsburgh game Sunday afternoon. The Resulted in a season-high 114 points and gave Jeff his second win of the season. Nice job!

Pittsburgh was the biggest upset of the week, with only Miglio receiving a point for picking Denver in the upset. Carolina's loss to Seattle hurt most of the board, but Heiser and Pasquino were sharp enough to pick Seattle.

OVERALL RANKINGS

Pasquino's big win lifted him into third place on the overall board and he gained a little ground on Larkin who finished second this week. Brimacombe had an okay week with 97 points, but he lost a lot of ground on Larkin and Pasquino is now breathing down his neck. Tuccitto is still hanging on for fourth as we round the final corner and head into the home stretch. With the bye weeks behind us, it's going to be a tight race to the finish.

HEAVY FAVORITES

Wow. A lot of big Vegas lines this week means a lot of consensus picks. The Texans, Packers, Panthers, Rams, Titans, Chiefs, Seahawks and Eagles were all unanimous choices by the staff this week. That's almost 1250 confidence points on those eight teams. New Orleans, Indianapolis, Miami, Chicago, and Denver were all heavy favorites in their respective contests.

DUAL SUPPORT

the only real game to be concerned about is Baltimore at Atlanta. The Vegas line is close to zero, and the staff picks are essentially even on this game. Pick your favorite team in this game.

ODDS AND ENDS

We're back to a full slate from here to the end of the season, so 136 is the maximum total possible, giving people a lot of room to move.

Good luck this weekend!
